What Are You Reading?

“It’s Monday! What are you Reading?” is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
It is a chance for book lovers to share their reading accomplishments as well as what is on the proverbial nightstand. She even does a giveaway. Subsequently Jen and Kellee at
Teach Mentor Texts added an opportunity for those reading kidlit to join the fun. Since I read both I will post to both.
Check them out, join the conversations, and discover more great books.

I am finally caught up so here are the books I completed this week…

BreadcrumbsBreadcrumbs by Anne Ursu*

DivergentDivergent by Veronica Rother

Choice WordsChoice Words by Peter H. Johnson

It was a very good week! The writing in Breadcrumbs is such a treat. I had barely started Divergent when I knew I was going to be sucked in. It is also the first time, in a long time, that I have started a series that I wanted to plow through before the entire series is even published. Choice Words gave me some new ideas of phrases to use with my students. A very good week, indeed.

An * indicates my ‘must own’ list, either for myself or my classroom library.


  1. I just finished Divergent too - and it was so good! And I'll recommend Legend by Marie Lu too (if you haven't read it yet) while you're waiting on the next book. It's another dystopian novel that I recently read and loved.

  2. I've got Breadcrumbs on my shelf right now -- it was on of the Cybils finalists and I'm trying to read them all.

  3. Insurgent comes out in May! I can't wait!!! Breadcrumbs is great, too!
